London Mayor Anti-Muslim Trump’s Remarks

Washington – London Mayor Sadiq Khan contended Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump represented the views of “extremists” by trying to say that mainstream believers in the Muslim religion cannot hold Western values.

Speaking to reporters in Chicago during his first visit to the U.S. since winning his mayoral contest in May, Khan called himself a “big fan” of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“I think it’s important for those of us who are foreigners to stay out of the U.S. elections. I hope the best candidate wins and I hope she does win with a stomping majority,” media reports quoted on Friday Khan as saying.

“We shouldn’t inadvertently play into the hands of extremists who say it’s not possible to be somebody who is a mainstream Muslim and hold Western liberal values,” he added.
